The co-founder of Johns Hopkins Medical School will be happy to participate in an autumn event and wishes to speak on "The Significance of the Present Age & Our Attitude Towards It".
TLS: "Howard A Kelly", 1p, 6x7. Baltimore, Maryland, 1940 July 19. On his imprinted letterhead to Mr. Earl Hunt. In full: "I am greatly interested in your gracious letter with its invitation. If my health (that is to say, strength) permits, I shall be only too happy to be with you at Johnson City to cooperate in your autumn schedule. I shall go South simply for that one purpose and return to Baltimore. Make your arrangements for whatever date is considered best, and I shall be only too happy to adjust myself to it. Very faithfully". Handwritten postscript: "How would this do for the talk - The significance of the present age & our attitude towards it? Did I dwell at all on SCIENCE last time?" American physician Howard Atwood Kelly (1858-1943) was one of the four doctors (along with William Osler, William Halstead and William Welch) who founded Johns Hopkins Medical School (1889), the first medical research university in the U.S. In 1895, Kelly established the Johns Hopkins Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the facility, where he made important strides in gynecology and surgery as both a practitioner and a teacher. Kelly, who had begun his practice of medicine in 1882, opened the Howard A. Kelly Hospital in 1892. He also wrote a number of textbooks on gynecology. Slightly creased with fold, not at signature. Minor type transference (completely legible). Fine condition.
